IWC #1 Sake Brewer of the Year 2019 & 2020 - Heiwa Shuzou

In its 37th year, the International Wine Challenge (IWC) is accepted as the world’s most rigorous, impartial and influential annual wine competition.

Tasting Notes

With the goal to create the new standard for next generation Sake in Japan, Heiwa Shuzou brings us “KID” Muryozan 30.  This sake, which receives its name from the former temple it is now brewed in, is the highest grade and best series of the KID sake lineup.  Using Grade A Yamadanishiki from Hyogo and a milling rate of 30%, this rice requires a very sophisticated and delicate technique for every step in the brewing process.  Heiwa Shuzo puts forth every ounce of energy to brew this sake to be the most beautiful.  Muryozan 30 is elegant, soft and smooth.

Brewery Description

Located in a Wakayama valley lies what was once orignally built as a temple, but now stands as Heiwa Shuzou - renamed after the end of the Second Wolrd War (Heiwa 平和 translates to "peace" or "harmony").  While the brewery has been making sake for four generations, the KID brand itself is quite young, only having started production about 10+ years ago.
